Friday Randoms



My awesome Border Collie buddy stays with me no matter where I go.  Woods, creeks, and muddy pastures make no difference to her.  


If you use a non-Google account to follow my blog, (or others), you are now out of luck.  Blogger now requires followers using Friend Connect to have a Google account.  Many people, including me, are not appreciating these antics.  If you are losing followers, this is why.  

The current political arena leaves a lot to be desired, but here is something that just might put a smile on your face, or even make you chuckle.  


Looks like Darth Vader is popping up all around the world.  


Of course there is some music for the weekend.  Enjoy!

Linking up with Tanya today!

and Cath!

  1. What a pretty walking buddy you have. We have a border collie, too, and she loves to go for walks but she's has a bad habit of chasing cars that we can't seem to break her of. So she has to stay on a leash which is too bad because she loves to run. I loved the political art satire and passed it on to a few friends.

  2. Dogs are the best and they're so sweet and loyal. I enjoyed the song choice, too. I haven't heard My Sharona in ages. I listened to it while I was putting on my eye liner.

    Have a lovely weekend... :)

  3. Love seeing your loyal pooch friend - great face!
    And speaking of faces . . . that Bronzino interpretation of Ted Cruz is PERFECT.
    Thanks for My Sharona.
    Weekend coming up . . . YAY.

  5. Your Buddy is cute, great company on your walks. Everytime I see Sarah Palin, I see Tina Fey's funny imitation of her.

    Love the pic of your faithful Border Collie . . .

  8. I did lose about 20 followers this week and wondered why.. then decided.. why do I want to "count" followers anyway. So I removed the gadget, but thank you for the heads up.

  9. Oh that's funny Michelle, I was wondering what I'd done to make followers disappear so quickly, that explains a lot :) Your four legged buddy looks like a wonderful companion.

  10. Love your dog peeking around the tree.

  11. Nice... What gets me about the GFC thing is the way 'Blogger' believes this is improving the blogging experience; what a load of tripe. Loved the art/politician mash-up - though I don't know all the individuals of course. Am I allowed to say that Trump is very worrying? And you seem far to young to remember 'The Knack'. Have a great weekend!

  13. I was wondering why I was losing followers. I hope people follow me because I speak to them, connect with them in a positive way.
    My Stella is a bi-black Sheltie. People often think she is Border Collie. We did have a Border Collie/coyote mix, Polly. She lived to be 17, in 2012. Stella goes just about anywhere we do. This Spring she will bcome a Therapy dog.

  15. Love the pic of Buddy watching your every move.
    Losing non Google+ friends does not sit well with me either. I'm working around it for my wordpress friends but its cumbersome and annoying.

  16. First of all, love your border collie! I was amazed at the Darth Vader statue made by the snow! How weird was that! :-) The political paintings were pretty funny...I have to say it made me feel like Bernie Sanders was a P.... word though. That Sarah Palin one was the best laugh. NOT happy with Google's antics!!!!

  17. Collies are so loyal, lovely dogs! Yes, google is not impressing me with such antics!

  18. what a sweet friend...google really bothers me the way they try to own the world...i was wondering why my numbers changed so drastically...because i have a love/hate with google, i try to do most searches with bing (ha, i first wrote bling) and they give me points to use for gift cards...when i can't find what i'm looking for i do go to google, but i put in a search for it through bing haha...anyways, shame on google! thanks for linking michelle and have a great weekend!

  19. Interesting about Google -- my numbers also dropped recently. My Daisy dog stays with me and keeps an eye on me out in the fields. Nice to have her companionship when I walk. Always feel safe when she is around. Present politics are the biggest fiasco I have witnessed since I started voting years ago. -- barbara

  20. Hello sweetie!
    (Love yesterday's pic too. And I've been wondering about the big drop in followers...)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Aren't you lucky to have a fine canine walking companion. Mine died a long time ago and my current life patterns don't fit well with a new dog, but I miss having him walking along with me.

    And, so that is why my follower count has been dropping! I thought people just hated me. Now there are two possibilities, blogger's policy and people hating me.

  22. Thanks for explaining why I lost 11 followers overnight. It takes FOREVER to rack up some followers, like 1 every 4 months and to lose 11 sucked. Love your dog! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  23. Lovely dog and politics all over the world is crazy.

  24. Googles explanation boggles (Boogles?? lol) my mind. Love how your border collie wants to be with you everywhere!

  25. Michelle, I'm not appreciating those "antics" of Google either. When you say "have a Google account," does that mean "Google+" or something else? I haven't signed up for Google+ because I'm not signing up for one more thing!

  26. I love the photo. I have a velcro dog too! She's part border collie think. Does your dog fetch.
    Mine doesn't. Throw a ball at her and it hits her in the nose. She can catch popcorn though. And she can herd!
    Thanks for clearing up about the followers. I've lost some and I wondered why. I hate they keep changing things. Yahoo changes things too and makes email a pain.
    Hope you have a great day.

  27. I was wondering why the count was down.

  29. Thanks for the reminder about the followers, I lost six and wondered why.
